    This is one of two strange knives I was given. Not sure what they would be used for. Ceremonial , decorative maybe?

      Your knife is of the "filipino negrito bolo knife style". Most of these were, and still are, hand made from old vehicle leaf springs, with a water buffalo handle. Great Knives! I have owned one in the bowie style for over 45 years now.

      Forgot to add the "horn" in water buffalo, as in "water buffalo horn handle." I wish we had an edit feature here at CW! lol

      Thank you! Leaf springs. That's cool!

      Your Welcome, and by the way, as you can imagine, leaf springs are made from some of the toughest steel available.
